I had a exhaust rattling on my 1998 Blazer. My local Chevy dealer said the
catalytic converter is rotting out & causing the rattling. They give me a
price of $425.00 to install a new one. They also said that it could break
up to the point that it could plug up the exhaust system & cause it to break
down on the road somewhere. My questions are will the after market
converters work just as well here? What's really involved here for me to
do it myself? It looks like only 6 bolts will remove the whole thing. Will
it effect my emissions system here for inspection in New York State? Any
comment or suggestions? Thanks for reading my post.
You can buy replacement cats, from Magnaflow or Dynomax that will be
direct fit or even universal fit that will work for your application.
I just bought uni fit cats for my truck, $55.00 each and $40.00 ea to
have them welded in.
As long as they are the cats designed for your application, regardless
of source, you should have no problems with emissions, even in NY.
